Help The Ball!

Published July 21, 2017 by biggayhorrorfan

The Ball

Courtney Love meets Vincent Price? Count me in!

Indeed, The Ball, the upcoming project from the truly colorful and always inventive Count the Clock Productions, promises an aesthetic meeting of these two very creative, yet seeming dissimilar minds (among others). Renowned for such shorts as Pep, I Love Lucy and The Cheerleader Trials, this also promises to be CTCP’s most ambitious project to date.

Thus, if you have a pretty penny or two jangling around in those ragged cut-offs, be sure to throw them some help at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/the-ball-horror#/. There, you can also explore the majestic originality of some of their previous work, as well.

Now, with my Good Samaritan cap firmly askew… I wish you SWEET love and pink GRUE, and a wonderful weekend!

I don’t know about you, but I actually sleep better knowing that the divine Kaycee Ortiz is out there creating amazing music – including Dream Warrior – a spookily hypnotic and potently empowering tribute to the A Nightmare on Elm Street legacy.

Nocturnal bliss, no?

…and to keep up with all Ortiz’s dynamic activities and poetic offerings, be sure to follow along at: https://www.facebook.com/KayceeOrtiz21.

Review: Honey

Published November 25, 2016 by biggayhorrorfan

honey-print

Is there such a thing as domestic bliss? Well, when you are brilliant artist-cartoonist Corinne Halbert there is!

Honey, Halbert’s latest comic details the adventures of the world’s happiest couple. Who cares if one of them just happens to be dead? And…well…rotting?!? Often hilarious, completely twisted and surprisingly sweet, this work just might prove to be Halbert, known for the savagely cool Hate Baby, at her best.

Imbued with her love of horror and the sexually bizarre (or is that normal?), Honey is available for purchase from Halbert at http://corinnehalbert.bigcartel.com/

If you’re anything like me, sometimes you’re just astounded by the coolness and the creativity of your fellow horror lovers. Case in point: I am just in love with Kellie and Susanne, the brilliant minds behind Chicago based Creepy Co.!

These two macabre wizards of magnificence have created t-shirts, stickers and pins that speak to the horror kid in us all. Dime store vampire teeth, VHS horror labels, and the beauty of cult legend Divine all find their way into this brilliant duo’s work.horrorvhsstickersticker_grande

The Art of Ruff

Published August 25, 2016 by biggayhorrorfan

Ruff Jason

My friend Christine couldn’t come out to play yesterday, but I didn’t mind. I just spent the night at home, writing under the watchful, protective eyes of little Jason, artist Bryan Ruff’s brilliantly gleeful and imaginatively childlike take on the legendary Friday the 13th villain!

In fact, all of Ruff’s soulful creations prove that the only guardian angels that any true horror lover will ever need are his personality filled imaginings of the younger versions of Michael, Pinhead, Leatherface and so many other terror icons. Ruff Michael

Besides the cute factor – which there is plenty of – what Ruff details, so personally, with these renderings is the innocence that these characters might have had before their more evil instincts took over. It’s a powerful reminder of the humanity that exists in our scares – something that is often overlooked in the flashier aspects of fright culture. It is also what sets Ruff’s work apart from so many other artists who are dealing with the terror genre. In a word, it’s heart.

Heavy Whisper

Art from Corinne Halbert’s Heavy Whisper

Somebody needs to get a remake of Modesty Blaise going right away and give dazzling Chicago artist Corinne Halbert the job of doing the main credits art. Full of sexy yet oh so deadly pop art majesty, Halbert’s new zine Heavy Whisper is both a swinging throwback to 60s model fetish magazines and something completely and, kinkily, her own – making her the perfect candidate for any cinematic revamping of a certain alluring lady spy.

Most importantly, as with all her work, Halbert just seems to having such fun here – reveling in all that life has to offer.

You can purchase Heavy Whisper and other joyous eccentricities at:

A Halbert and her BGHF!

Midwest residents also have a couple days left to check out Corinne’s one woman show at AdventureLand Works on Paper, 1513 N. Western, which closes on February 27th.  Pieces featured in Heavy Whisper are on display along with numerous colorfully psychedelic looks at childhood and youthful adventure.
